Knee pain is a common complaint that affects people of all ages. It is as unique as fingerprint In order to knee work perfectly, it lies on a perfect balance between hip and ankle support.
Our knee is a very complex joint comprising cartilage, tendons, ligaments, blood vessels and it is here that three bones come together – namely the fibula and tibia (lower leg), and the femur (thigh). There are two joints, Tibiofemoral joint and Patella femoral joint those take the heavy lift, bearing most of the weight and enabling us to bend the knee.
On top of the joints, there are ligaments that attach the bones together – ligaments act like stretchy bands. There are five major ligaments that keep the knee safely in place and allow it to move around without going too forward or backward.
One of the knee’s functions is to carry our weight of the body and absorb the shock that is caused by walking, running, jumping or other weight-bearing activities. The most mesmerizing aspect of this function is the kneecap’s ability; it can bear up to 5 times of the body weight, which means, the kneecaps are able to bear even half a ton of weight.
For such a tiny part of the body, the knee is prone to a variety of aches, pains, and injuries. Even a small repetitive strain can cause serious ligament and tendon injuries, such as tearing of the meniscus or chronic inflammation. A most common cause is a degenerative disease like Arthritis and its various types.
